Become a  Vestibular Rehab Specialist

The Certificate of Competency in Vestibular Rehabilitation (CCVR) Course will help you elevate your entire knowledge base on the wide scope of vestibular therapy & how it can be used to assist the vestibular population and beyond – in proven and actionable ways.

The CCVR course is now available as part of our new Level 4 V2FIT (Visual Vestibular Functional Integration Toolbox). The toolbox also includes additional on-demand courses, tools, discussion forum, coaching calls, etc.

Certificate of Competency in Vestibular Rehabilitation (CCVR) Course

 The CCVR Course is designed to build your understanding and know-how through practical application of the methodologies in vestibular rehabilitation – the same methodologies we use to assess and treat the vestibular population.

This course provides clinicians a convenient and flexible path to advanced training in vestibular rehabilitation through online coursework.  Upon completion of the online coursework, participants will have the opportunity to demonstrate required clinical skills in the virtual lab. 

Not only is this a self-paced, on-demand course, but we do also have the option of following along with our guided lesson plan.

We offer the guided lesson plan twice per year (in January and in August).

Multidisciplinary collaboration in a friendly and judgment-free atmosphere to share your insights and ask questions with the course director, CCVR faculty, and other experts in the vestibular field.

“I attended a small one day vestibular rehab course in Iowa provided by a PT with her Emory certification. This course came highly recommended. I previously worked with a vestibular rehab physical therapist who relocated & I wanted to continue serving this population. This course format allowed me to continue working full-time, implementing the info, while also receiving my certificate.”

 CCVR Graduate

“I now have more tools to screen all the possible causes of dizziness as well as the ability and exercises to treat related impairments. This course helped me see the bigger picture to treat my patient in all aspects.”

 Stacy S., PT, Texas

“The online format is fantastic! I can’t imagine absorbing a week’s worth of material at another course! Then not being able to view the material again. The CCVR course allowed me to review selected lectures multiple times. I would highly recommend the CCVR course to any therapist interested in developing their expertise regarding vestibular rehab.”

 Bob S., PT, DPT, Oklahoma
